6.055J The Art of Approximation in Science and Engineering (MIT)

Description

This course teaches simple reasoning techniques for complex phenomena: divide and conquer, dimensional analysis, extreme cases, continuity, scaling, successive approximation, balancing, cheap calculus, and symmetry. Applications are drawn from the physical and biological sciences, mathematics, and engineering. Examples include bird and machine flight, neuron biophysics, weather, prime numbers, and animal locomotion. Emphasis is on low-cost experiments to test ideas and on fostering curiosity about phenomena in the world.

10.34 Numerical Methods Applied to Chemical Engineering (MIT)

Description

Numerical methods for solving problems arising in heat and mass transfer, fluid mechanics, chemical reaction engineering, and molecular simulation. Topics: numerical linear algebra, solution of nonlinear algebraic equations and ordinary differential equations, solution of partial differential equations (e.g. Navier-Stokes), numerical methods in molecular simulation (dynamics, geometry optimization). All methods are presented within the context of chemical engineering problems. Familiarity with structured programming is assumed. The examples will use MATLAB®. Acknowledgements The instructor would like to thank Robert Ashcraft, Sandeep Sharma, David Weingeist, and Nikolay Zaborenko for their work in preparing materials for this course site.

Fighting malaria in Myanmar

Description

Professor Frank Smithuis is the director of MOCRU, Myanmar Oxford Clinical Research Unit. MOCRU involves a network of 6 clinics and 650 community health workers in remote areas. Up until now, Myanmar has spent little on heathcare and receive little assistance from rich countries. Prevention is difficult, which leaves diagnosis and treatment. MOCRU has set up a network of community health workers, trained and supplied with diagnostics and treatments, to help improve access to healthcare for remote communities.

21M.380 Music and Technology: Sound Design (MIT)

Description

In this course, we will rebuild the everyday sounds of nature, machines, and animals from scratch and encapsulate them in dynamic sound objects which can be embedded into computer games, animations, movies, virtual environments, sound installations, and theatre productions. You will learn how to analyze and model sounds and resynthesize them with the open-source graphical programming environment Pure Data (Pd). Our work will be guided by Andy Farnell's book Designing Sound (MIT Press, 2010). No previous programming experience is required.

21L.705 Major Authors: Oscar Wilde and the '90's (MIT)

Description

At this distance Oscar Wilde seems not only to be on the threshold between centuries and between cultural-systems: in many ways he seems to be the threshold. His aesthetics look backwards to the aestheticism of Pater and the moral sensibility of Ruskin, and they look forward to Modernism. His antecedents are 18th century playwrights, and he opened a path of irony and structural self-reflexivity that leads to Beckett and Tom Stoppard. He was Irish but achieved his great successes in England. Arguably, his greatest success was his greatest public failure: in his scandalous trials he shaped 20th century attitudes toward homosexuality and toward theatricality and toward performativity. His greatest performance was the role of "Oscar Wilde": in that sense he taught the 20th century ho

Grey Street, Newcastle upon Tyne

Description

Postcard looking up Grey Street, Newcastle upon Tyne towards Grey's Monument, early 20th Century (TWAM ref. DF.ATK/16/5). The postcard is unused. This set celebrates the many postcards in our collections. The people, places and events they show can give us an insight into the past, documenting the landscape, the fashions, the way we lived. Some postcards are unused but others tell us something about the people who bought them, through the messages they wrote. They can give us a fascinating glimpse into people?s lives.

Energy resources: An introduction to energy resources

Description

Energy resources are essential for any society be it one dependent on subsistence farming or an industrialised country. There are many different sources of energy some well-known such as coal or petroleum others less so such as tides or the heat inside the Earth. Is nuclear power a salvation or a nightmare? This free course provides background information to each

Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes: a review

Description

Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes: a review is the fifth and final course in the series on mathematical modelling. In this free course we revisit the model developed in the first course of this series on pollution in the Great Lakes of North America. Here we evaluate and revise the original model by comparing its predictions against data from the lakes before finally reflecting on the techniques used. This course assumes you have studied the courses Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes Analysing skid marks Developing modelling skills and Modelling heat transfer.

Fuel poverty in Scotland

Description

In this free course you will be hearing and reading about the issues faced by people living in poverty in Britain in 2000. This is intended to give you an understanding of what poverty is like from the perspective of the people themselves both in terms of the experience of living on a very low income and some of the effects this has had on their lives. One of the biggest problems facing people living on a very low income is how to afford adequate heating.

Energy resources: Geothermal energy

Description

Energy from sources other than fossil and nuclear fuels is to a large extent free of the concerns about environmental effects and renewability that characterise those two sources. Each alternative source supplies energy continually whether or not we use it. This free course considers one of these alternative sources geothermal energy derived from the interior heat of the Earth and the potential for this alternative to supplant fossil and nuclear fuel to power social needs fast enough to avoid the likelihood of future global warming and other kinds of pollution.
